BMW Compact Active Tourer will change generation in 2020September 20, 2019
The first photos of a test sample of the future news have already leaked to the Web. The car looks a bit larger than its predecessor, and one of the main differences was that the rear-view mirror mounts were moved from the glass to the door panel.
BMW is preparing the second generation of its second-class BMW Active Tourer compact van. The appearance of camouflaged news on the Web was a real surprise for fans of the brand, since until that time it was rumored that the Bavarian brand was saying goodbye to Active Tourer and the seven-seater version of Gran Tourer due to not the highest sales. Recall, we have known the current BMW Active Tourer since 2014, and his brother Gran Tourer appeared in 2015. Last year they were updated synchronously. According to experts, the second generation of the compact van may appear next year, and the start of sales should be expected in 2021.
From the current Active Tourer, the novelty is distinguished by a new glazing line, and its headlights have been given a narrower and elongated shape.
The actual compact van receives one and a half liter gasoline engines with a capacity of 109 and 140 hp, as well as a two-liter with a return of 192 hp. The motor range of the novelty is also complemented by a hybrid and a pair of diesel engines – one and a half liter 116-horsepower and two-liter with a capacity of 150 or 190 hp. The drive can be either front-wheel or full, and the type of transmission depends on the chosen modification – manual transmission, automatic transmission or “robot”. Something like we are waiting for a new generation.
In addition, in all likelihood, the car will receive a further evolution of the front-wheel-drive platform UKL2, which at one time went to its predecessor. Also, the manufacturer will expand the list of electronic assistants: voice assistant, traction control, as well as various kinds of security systems and “assistants” to the driver.
